For this week’s ROM of the week, check out Illusion ROM.
Based on Android 4.2.2, Illusion ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with great performance, battery life, and features.
First and foremost, Illusion ROM comes with Key Lime Pie (from Android 5.0) theme and wallpapers. You will be able to be one of the first to try Key Lime Pie theme although Android 5.0 release is far away. That alone is a great excuse to install this ROM.
Second, Illusion ROM comes with some great transition animations, it really freshens up your Android experience.
Third, Illusion ROM has a ton of UI customization similar to AOKP ROM Control. You can also change your UI DPI to tablet mode, run your favorite apps in tablet/custom DPI mode via Xposed App Settings, and performance benchmarking is very fast equal to or higher than its TouchWiz siblings.
There’s even HALO floating notifications ported from ParanoidAndroid ROM and PIE Control with option to set your favorite shortcuts.
Overall, Illusion ROM is certainly one AOSP ROM with killer features just in the way you’d want it. If you want to stay on the bleeding edge of Android 4.2.2 and Key Lime Pie, definitely give the Illusion ROM a try over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
To install, reboot into recovery, make a backup ROM (just in case), wipe data/factory reset (unless coming from Illusion ROM), install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.
To fix broken Google Search, just update “Google Search” app from Play Store.
You can upgrade to the latest Android 4.3 PhotoSphere camera.
